Goldman-Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses Info Session
Tuesday, June 11, 2013 from 6:30 PM to 8:00 PM (EDT)
Are you a small manufacturer, restaurateur, landscaper, accountant or other small business owner who wants to take your company to the next level? If you’re generating at least $150,000 per year in revenue and have a few folks you employ, you could benefit from Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses. JumpStart’s Patricia Grospiron will explain the benefits of the free business education program at an information session to be held at the Hudson Library & Historical Society on Tuesday, June 11 at 6:30 p.m.
Grosporian will answer questions about this “mini-MBA” offering and share examples of ways its graduates have made key connections, gained financial smarts and improved their negotiation skills. For example, Cleveland-based TLC Springwater CEO Kazell Pugh recently noted that, after participating in the program, his company was able to increase its sales by 55 percent and add three more people to its team.
The Goldman-Sachs 10,000 Small Business initiative is a practical business management education program that helps you develop the skills you need to grow your company. It is a $500 million national program designed to help small businesses in the United States create jobs and economic growth by providing entrepreneurs with a practical business education, access to capital and business support services. If selected, you will have access to one-on-one advising sessions from dedicated professionals, peer learning and greater access to business support services.
Applications for the program are due July 1 and interview date is August 27 for the program that starts in the fall on Friday, September 13, 2013. Classes are held at the Tri-C Corporate College East campus in Warrensville Heights. Business owners eligible to apply for the program generally have been in business for two years or more and typically have at least four employees and a revenue stream of $150,000 to $4 million per year.
Plan to come on Tuesday, June 11 at 6:30 for this informative presentation, Q&A, and walking through the application. Register for this free event at hudsonlibrary.org or call 330.653.6658, x1010.
